Living in Shorts in this Hot Hot Weather

Don’t be fooled by my casually tilted head staring at the camera with my (not-so-successful) smize.. I was sweating profusely underneath. It’s been hot, hot, hot here in Manila — but I’m not complaining. The sun actually makes me happy – seeing its rays casted on city skyscrapers and all that’s in between. Besides, did you know that getting some sun has positive effects on our weight and overall body mass index? YUP. Just don’t forget to pile on the sunscreen (lots of it!!) before stepping out! cvn00td3cvn00td4cvnootd5b

Eventful Day

Spent this day going to two events — first stop was the La Isla Fete bazaar filled with carefully curated beauty, fashion and lifestyle brands. My sister and I went a little crazy on the bikinis, comfy summer shorts and flirty dresses. Flirty a.k.a super backless and/or filled with cutouts that almost drop it to bikini level. I could already see my husband’s disapproving look in my head while holding them as I’ve received one too many of those looks when we shop for clothes together. Haha. Photos of the bazaar soon. Our second and final stop was the Aranaz Club Tropicana event that combined the ease of shopping, delectable hors d’oeuvres (smoked salmon YUM), free-flowing cocktail drinks, goodvibes music and a beautiful view of the Metro all in one rooftop. It was one of the nicest, most laidback event I’ve gone to this summer (so far!). Here’s a beautiful piece of the new Aranaz collection that I’ve eyed and contemplated on getting but alas, card transactions weren’t available when we got there as the terminal was down – which I took as a sign.

A Request

Also, before I end this post, I’ve recently gotten feedback on my ask.FM account to post more OOTDS. As I replied back in there, I would love to oblige but I only have my outfit shots taken when I’m with my fashion blogger sister which is not often. I will commission the help of my husband whom I know will scoff at the thought, but I’ll try anyway. Ha! How about you guys? Any summer go-to outfits? And if it’s not spring/summer yet in your part of the world, I’d love to still hear about the weather situation over there. Yup, let’s talk about WEATHER you guize!

    Definitely shorts and a loose top. I’ve barely even been wearing makeup! I hate hot, sunny weather. I love cold, gloomy days when you can just cuddle in bed all day and watch rom-coms or read a book.

      I’m a true blue tropical girl. The sun makes me happy talaga and rainy gloomy weather gets me down. Although when I was pregnant, it was the other way around. I super longed for rain and even thunderstorms. :)) I think kaya water baby si Selene – Aquarius! Plus, she loves being in the water. Haha. But me – I imagine living in California cos of the perfect weather. Sunny but cool, breezy winds all the time!

    I don’t normally plan my OOTDs. I just get the first thing that I see in my closet and then put it on. Hahaha. I actually don’t have a social life and RARELY go out of the house. But if I do, in this summer heat, definitely shorts and whatever t-shirt or loose top I see lying around haha

    • April 8, 2014 / 6:18 pm

      Okay girl magkita tayo parati para magka-social life ka 🙂 G? I’ll shoot your OOTDS, teh!

      Oh and I’m game for the 19th na. @ravenang:disqus, Megamall/Shang.

        Aynako. I’m game with going out on a date with you but I work better behind the camera. Ako nalang magpi-picture sa’yo. Hahaha. And besides, my OOTDs aren’t #ootd- or blog-worthy. Hindi ako masyadong maarte sa outfit. I have tons of tattoos on my arms kaya I’m cool with just shirt and pants/shorts 🙂

        And yes yes yes! Kamown, @ravenang:disqus 🙂

    Smizing, love it! In London it’s very rarely hot enough for short short let alone normal shorts! But im heading out to Thailand soon and will be wearing loose playsuits, sunglasses and a large hat 🙂

    Your sister takes lovely photos! & you look absolutely gorgeous in that outfit! 🙂 Nakakatawa descriptions mo about the flirty dresses & how your hubby reacts hahaha I also love flirty dresses/outfits in general, but my boyfriend is really conservative so I have to tone down my outfit choices sometimes… sometimes lang LOL. 🙂

    • April 9, 2014 / 8:15 pm

      Thank you thank you eileen! And yes, my husband is admittedly conservative too so these cutout-everything dresses nowadays are too much for his taste haha! Cute ng boyfriend mo gurl, at least sometimes ka lang pinato-tone down and tanggap niya ang half ng pagkatao mo na into flirty dresses 🙂 Hihi

    Love the top! We’re so similar! I absolutely LOVE sunshine too and I detest rain and any other kind of precipitation. Someday I’d like to live in a place where it almost never rains.

    • April 9, 2014 / 8:16 pm

      ME TOO!! California is my dream city kasi it almost never rains there! And the sun shines without being too hot because of the breezy winds 🙂

    I love your shorts so much! Very edgy 🙂 Sobrang init na ng panahon, noh? Di ko kaya! It’s hard to be fashionable when you just want to be naked in this crazy weather! LOL.

    • April 9, 2014 / 8:17 pm

      Thanks Kyliebabie 😉 SUPER INIT! Hahahaha that would be a crazy-porn-level OOTD though, gurl – naked #ootd! LOL looking forward to it (!!??!?) hahaha

    WEATHER! MY favorite topic! 😀 It’s pretty warm here, but I’ve always preferred hot instead of cold 😀 I love your distressed shorts, they’re the perfect pair! And I’d love to see more outfits from you too ^_^ Maybe you can cook a special dinner for every photo your hubby takes 😀

    • April 9, 2014 / 8:19 pm

      I talk about the weather more often than I should HAHA. Where are you right now ba Keiti bebz? And that is an idea my husband would definitely DEFINITELY love, seryoso. If only I can cook more stuff than pasta and eggs HAHAHAHA. Thanks for the tip though, I’ll use it to negotiate with the husband!
